Covid: Britons arriving from UAE must self-isolate after travel corridor removed

Thousands of British holidaymakers currently in Dubai and the other emirates of the UAE will have to self-isolate on return. The Gulf state has been removed from the "travel corridors” list that gives exemption from quarantine to arrivals in the UK. It follows what government sources call "a significant acceleration" in coronavirus cases imported to the UK from Dubai.

Anyone arriving after 4am on Tuesday 12 January must self-isolate for 10 days – though people living in England can take a Covid test after five days and, if it is negative, end quarantine.

The Foreign Office now warns against “all but essential travel to the UAE, based on the current assessment of Covid-19 risks”.

The transport secretary, Grant Shapps, tweeted: “We need to immediately remove the UAE from the travel corridor list.”

The announcement was made shortly before 8pm UK time, making it impossible for anyone in the UAE to return before the deadline.
